International Chocolate Day


International Chocolate Day is just the excuse we need to work our way through the dessert menus on Notts’ food and drink scene – here’s some of our favourite places to get our chocolate fix in the city and county!

The Pudding Pantry

Whether it’s a rich marquise or a classic brownie, The Pudding Pantry know what they’re doing when it comes to chocolate.


Chocolate Afternoon Tea at The Larder

Keep your eyes and ears to ground for The Larder on Goosegate’s one-off chocolate afternoon tea events. Anticipate chocolate petit fours, chocolate chip scones and even a glass of chocolate liqueur wine…


Crêpes at French Living

Does it get any better than crêpes au nutella or crêpe banane chocolat in the heart Nottingham? We doubt it.


Chocolate Desserts at World Service

When there’s chocolate on the menu at the award winning World Service restaurant, you know it’s going to taste special.


Hot Chocolate Puddings at The Ram

Choose from chocolate fondant with peanut brittle, caramelised bananas and salted caramel or a white chocolate fondue with fresh seasonal berries, lavender honeycomb & pain au chocolat.

Pieminister Glastonbury Mud Ice Cream Pie

A chocolate ice cream filled pie with meringue, chocolate sauce & almonds? Sold!


Treats from Delilah

The Delilah deli and shop have long been Nottingham’s go-to for fine food. Whether you go for their artisan chocolate bars or a generous wedge of chocolate and stout cake,  you won’t be disappointed.

Chocolate Cake at Cartwheel Cafe & Roastery

Nottingham’s new kids on the block Cartwheel have already made a name for themselves in the chocolate cake department.


Hot Chocolate at Alfresco Caffe

Alfresco’s luxurious Italian hot chocolate comes with all the trimmings – perfect for dipping some crunchy biscotti.

Chocolate Making Workshops at the School of Artisan Food

You can learn how to craft your own artisan chocolate bars, truffles and ganache under the expert guidance of the School of Artisan Food. Don’t miss the resident chocolatier at Welbeck Abbey.


Hambleton Bakery Brownies

Baking is a serious business over at Hambleton Bakery and the chocolate brownies more than live up to the bakery’s multi-award winning reputation.

Chocolate Flavour Fudge from The Treat Kitchen

Alongside their gourmet chocolate pizzas and tempting selection of belgian chocolate truffles, The Treat Kitchen’s handmade crumbly chocolate fudge is second to none.



The showstopping chocolate cakes at Homemade usually come with several tiers and can be washed down with an equally indulgent chocolate milkshake.

Uber Chocolatey Ice Cream Sundae at Newfield Dairy

One scoop of milk magic ice cream & one scoop of chocolate ice cream, layered with pieces of chocolate brownie and chocolate sauce and topped with whipped cream and crushed flake. Need we say more?
